OUT OF THE ROLLING OCEAN

OUT OF THE ROLLING OCEAN
by JEFFREY ERIC FUNK / WALT WHITMAN

Out of the rolling ocean
The crowd came a voice
Whispering “I love you
Before long I must go”

I’ve come a long, long way
Merely to look on you
I could not go till I found you

Behold the ocean and the land
Hear the music of the storm
No one can separate us

Now we have met
We have look’d
We are safe
Return in peace to the ocean
I too am part of the sea

THE MAJESTY AND THE POWER by JEFFREY ERIC FUNK

There was a time when we believed
We could imagine and trust in our dreams
Clouds changin’ shape, orange sunset skies
Watching the wonder through child-like eyes
Can you remember?

I feel it, I know there’s love all around
A world where hope shines when rainbows are found
We can climb the highest mountain, we can swim the deepest sea
With the Majesty and the Power of our dreams

Fly ‘cross the sky, we’ll touch the stars
There are no limits, our dreams take us far
An open door your heart will find
Unlock the magic inside your mind
It’s there. Believe it.

CHORUS

When gray clouds are near we’ll find the silver lining
Believe, our dreams will shine

CAGED BIRD
by JEFFREY ERIC FUNK

If I could fly thru the sky, I’d reach up and touch the stars
I know someday my dreams will take me far
I’ll sing a brand new song, sing it proud and strong
I long for the day I’ll spread my wings
Just hear how a caged bird sings

A caged bird sings for freedom
Freedom won’t you hear my song?
I’ve been lock’d up far too long
Spread my wings
I long to fly

I watch the clouds changin’ shape, I see colored autumn leaves
I’ll get my chance to soar above the trees
I’ll make a joyful noise; hope is in my voice
My day is approaching, you will see
I know soon I will be free

CHORUS

Take me, take me to the sky
Oo, lift me, lift me higher. Higher!
Sing! Come ‘n’ listen to my voice
Hear how a caged bird sings

CHORUS
